View Full Version : Not fair...
10-12-2006, 10:29 AM
so i'm checking out some of the websites for the teams in PIHA, and open up the website for the Lunatics, and bam! as if they didn't do enough this summer, they have added 2 of the best inline players in the world, Jami Yoder and Dan Costanza... It's pretty safe to say that after this and the other additions they have made during the offseason, they have gone from much improved to strong favorites... Much congrats to CoachClip for adding 2 more studs... As tough as it will be for anyone that has to play against them, it is great for the league to have the best players wanting to participate

I was waiting for someone to notice that and announce it!:p

Yeah i bet you were... have fun getting smoked in practice and warm-ups...

Jake you forgot also in the games, im equally ****ty all the way through.
10-12-2006, 11:56 AM
oh, you mean they're going to let you play the games?
10-12-2006, 11:58 AM
Just against you, just remember though i cant see things under 5 ft so hold up your stick when you get close to me. Thats if you can get past my new defenseman. :eek:
10-12-2006, 12:03 PM
i only hope your new defenseman share your vision issues as well or i'll have my work cut out for me... they're kinda good...
10-12-2006, 12:09 PM
Ive never sugarcoated it, they arent issues. Im blind!! Problem is you cant score on a blind, fat person.

Yokes, is that vision problem in anyway attributed to the number of screwdrivers you pregame with?
Jake, you're looking into the Lunatics page too much. 1. Jami is playing UHL for the Quad City Mallards out in Moline, IL. Doubtful we'll see him in many games out east here. 2. Danny's homebase is in Chicago, IL where he's running a youth inter-rink league (looks similar to NARYHL)... same deal applies for him. Unless of course Todd, Biff, Jay and Big Yings all pitched in to get them to travel here for all their games... I highly doubt we'll ever see these two in play, let alone qualify for playoffs. Good Promo for the Tics, maybe it'll attract a few unknowning fans.:cool:

Just that beautiful word screwdriver brings the shakes back this late in the afternoon!

Frank... i understand where you're coming from and it's a pretty logical statement that they wont be around that often, but i disagree with thinking they wont qualify for the playoffs... we have players in our program who come from way out of town to play, and we've seen the distance that Johhny P traveled to play for the Growl. And it's probably double suck for us in Pittsburgh because we're the closest city to the direction they're coming from, so they might be likely to play games here. If i remember right, and no guaruntees that i do, you only have to play 10 regular season games to qualify for the playoffs... We had a crazy weekend last season with 6 games, and if you take that and another weekend with 4 games, you have all the games you need in 2 weekends... I'm sure if they've taken the time to get them in the fold, they'll at least be around when it counts...

Last year it was 12 games for the playoffs. This year I believe it will be 20.
10-12-2006, 09:29 PM
Well that would make things interesting... where did you hear that?
10-12-2006, 10:06 PM
It is in the 2006-2007 PIHA handbook, so I guess it is official. Personally I think it is a good rule, add some legitimancy to the league. I just hope the other divisions keep stats as well as the east.
10-12-2006, 10:22 PM
I agree that it is a good rule, but there have to be exceptions, which could make it hard to enforce... Obviously the intention is to avoid the players that aren't "local" and only play a handful of games during the season and show up for the playoffs. But for instance if a player gets hurt and doesn't end up playing enough games, or the converse of that, if players get injured near the end of the season and you have to call up a player from the minor team who hasn't played enough games... Every situation is different and it could get messy if you start to make allowances for different people or different cases... Maybe the PIHA rulebook explains some of this, and i will now go bother my owner to find out just that:p

I hear ya Jake. If it helps you sleep any better at night, Danny has been on rosters the past 5 seasons of PIHA... he has yet to step on the rink for any squad in PIHA. Trust me, if the rumors were true and the two of them would be there for playoffs... I have a feeling I'd have a couple more players coming down to York and try to play for us. Not that we'd take them at this point... but ya know.

No need! There is already a rule in place for this. The league will have an injured reserve rule that will allow an injured player to get credit for games played while injured, based on league approval.
